Wild "A" axis motor
« on: February 08, 2012, 04:54:14 PM »
This is just a standard 3 axis R&P router with two motors on the "X" axis the second is designated "A".

When I try to home all everything works until "X" homes. The "X" stops and resets off the home switch but the slave motor "A" doesn't see the home switch and keeps running. I tried telling it to see the same pins as "X" but it didn't.

Will restarting Mach 3 reset this??  Is there something I can do?

If you are trying to use a switch on the slaved axis then it can not be the same switch input as the master axis home switch. If you are just wanting to home to the switch on the master side then look at the settings in general config, home slave with master comes to mind.
